Phonation Resistance Training Exercises (PhoRTE) is voice therapy for pathologic age-related voice changes (presbyphonia) that occur in older adults. PhoRTE uses high intensity vocal exercise to systematically rehabilitate the vocal mechanism and improve vocal endurance. Expiratory Muscle strength training (EMST ) improves active expiratory muscle forces required for high-pressure activities such as long utterances or loud speech in vocally healthy individuals. In this 30-45 minute presentation, Drs. Hapner and Zeigler will discuss how voice therapy targeting high vocal intensity exercise (eg, PhoRTE) and EMST can play a role in improving voice outcomes for patients with presbyphonia and provide information about recent innovations in dysphagia treatment. A 15 minute Q & A session follows

PhoRTE with EMST , presented by Edie Hapner, Ph.D, CCC - SLP and Aaron Ziegler, PhD, CCC-SLP
